The commission said the city plans to set up 654 new public toilets and upgrade 1,508 existing toilets over the next three years in response to this campaign. The winners' design works will be adopted as part of the implementation plan to build public toilets in the city.

Two categories of design teams
The competition is divided into two groups, an interior design team and a landscape design team.

The toilets are to be designed according to different regions (for 11 districts) and under different environmental conditions (tourist attractions, urban centers, and urban-rural junctions).
